  1. Better usage of the open Microsoft Office format

    The new Microsoft Office formats are open and formatted with XML. It would be nice to use this better, for example with comparison of two documents (Regarding versioning) or for automatic indexing for known documents. The index values could be read directly in the XML data. Most documents are created with the Microsoft Office package.

  3. Limit list of stamp with values of a fields

    When you have many stamp it is difficult for the user to know which to choose. The list should be limited according to, for example, the type of document or its state etc.

  4. The folder view does not display the first level field name.

    In the Docuware folder view, the first column of the hierarchal result is labeled as "NAME" instead of the actual name of the field selected.

  5. Make the zoom level of the Document Overview persistent.

    Is there a way to make the zoom level of the Document Overview persist whenever it is summoned anew? If not, can we get that feature added? I don't know why anyone would ever NOT want the Document Overview to remember the size of the thumbnails that has been previously selected...

  6. Ability to download a document in Excel format

    We have reports that are getting imported into DocuWare as a DOCX file. A nice feature to the download section would be to convert the report to an Excel (xlsx) format. The accounting side of the business could then filter and work with the information better.

  8. Make the highlighter tool like the one in Word or Google Docs.

    The current highlighter tool covers up the word it is highlighting to much. Also it should not be a freestyle highlighter, but used like that in Word or Google Docs.

  10. show open files without documents in Explorer - accommodating structured file plans

    At my institution we have a structure file plan/classification scheme that must be adhered to. Users like using the Explorer View to browse for their documents, and we've currently set it up so that the first folder layer is the file code, with the specific folders belonging to that category displaying "within" it. The issue is that open files with no electronic documents attached to them do not display to the user. We have a work-around by putting a temp file in each newly created folder. Please make these open folders with no documents in them visible!

  11. Add the ability to see the Bookmarks on the Viewer

    We work with multi-page technical documents that have pre-defined bookmarks to ease the section navigation. The viewer within Docuware doesn't allow for bookmarks to be displayed and users have to surf through 600+ pages in order to find the content. It would be ideal if it could show the contents the same way Adobe Reader does.
    We implemented a workaround where users would download the content and open it in it's native application but it is very inefficient and causes a high level of unnecessary network traffic.

  12. Direct Access to Files Within a Document

    The current version of Docuware relies on PDF file structures but there are a great number of clients that have TIFF and DWTIFF images that are all each treated as a single clipped file in a Document. This creates a big problem for the users who wish to go directly to an image within a file with a large number of pages.

    There are 2 solutions both of which I think need to be applied to Docuware as they both solve multiple problems.

    1: Build a Pre 6 DW document to PDF file conversion workflow. This would allow clients with…

  13. Possibility to call Specific players for specific files

    Possibility to call an external application for the consultation of specific files, for ex. an .swf file must be open by a flash player.
    When we try to open this kind of file, the viewer calls the program that was defined in advance.

  14. Default the arrow and page up/down keys to page and document flipping in the write version

    In our read-only version, the arrow keys flip through pages. The page up/down keys flip through documents. However, in the write version, the focus in on the text box, so these keys don't flip through pages or documents. You have to change the focus by clicking on the document in the viewer to reset the keys to flipping. You must do this every time a new document is opened. I absolutely see the benefits of having the text box selected by default, but it would also be nice to flip through things with keyboard shortcuts by default. Thanks for listening.

  15. Go directly to the page that contains that indexed value

    The ability to go directly to the page that contains that indexed value. For example, If I index a value on page #5 out of document that has 20 pages (a multi-page PDF) and when I search/retrieve for that value, it takes me directly to view page #5 without scrolling the pages. The idea is to click on an index value on the left pane, the document viewer on the right pane brings to page #5 without doing a full text search.

  16. Split panes next to each other instead of one above other.

    Is it possible to have split panes next to each other instead of one above the other? With a separate viewer there is a better view of the webbaskets, entries, lists etc.

  17. Allow for higher level of zoom for document overview window

    The maximum level of zoom currently available for the document overview window makes it practically useless when used with a larger monitor.

  18. add bookmarks to the Viewer

    Every time I close a multi-page document in the Viewer I lose my place - it'd be great if I could place a bookmark (with or without a name), especially for those long documents.

    The "Place Bookmark" button could be in the Tools or Navigation section and the Navigation bar could allow you to scroll between multiple bookmarks, the way you scroll between pages and docs.

  19. Add the function "jump directly to the last document" in the Viewer in case of documents put together with a clip.

    Lawyers have an awful amount of documents in their cases/lawsuit (sometimes more than 200) and they put them together with a clip. Nevertheless in the Viewer you can only jump from one after the other, which meas you have to make 200 clics until you see the last document.

  20. Show Message into Docuware

    When a user archive a new file, Docuware show a user defined message. A possibility to fix into the Platform method.
